additional shale and tight development in other basins and our major
capital project at TCO in Kazakhstan,” said Chairman and CEO Michael K.
Wirth. “Our investments are anchored in high-return short-cycle
projects, with more than two-thirds of spend projected to realize cash

growth, enabling continued free cash flow that underpins our strong
dividend and share repurchase program.”
